I suppose everyone has some books that are considered comfort reads, books you turn to when you are feeling sick or depressed or you just need some cheer me up... At first glance I would say that all my keepers can be considered comfort reads but the truth is that I don't reread them for comfort, meaning I don't reread them when I'm feeling down or sick.
I do reread them however when I'm feeling a bit disappointed in my reads, when everything seems to be repetitive and annoying and deja vue, that's when I like to read my old favourites. Now is one of those periods and I'm thoroughly enjoying the pleasure of revisiting some known characters, some interesting and emotional situations... but maybe that's just another form of comfort!
This is something I've started to do recently, I used to think my TBR pile was too big to allow me time to reread and so I could easily have 6 months or more between rereads. Well not anymore, I'm having such a great time since I started to organise my keepers and rereading my "doubtfuls" that I think I may have to start my own challenge and reread at least one old favourite a month!
What about you all, do you reread often?
